Coloring Easter Eggs

I'm not a big boiled egg person - in fact, I don't eat them at all. Thank heavens The Girl does or we might not ever dye Easter eggs. Since Spring Break came last week and the "Pickles" were back in school this week, we didn't get around to coloring the Easter eggs until the day before Easter.

The Girl is using the wax crayon to draw on her egg before dying it.

Mr. LH made a Spongebob egg
The Boy made a "Creeper" egg

The Girl wanted a purple egg so she dyed it blue, then put it in the pink. It came out pretty and speckled
This time she mixed the blue and pink colors and drew Kirby on an egg. It came out a pale lavender.
Of course, I couldn't find any rubber bands and I wasn't about to give up any of my yarn so we just went with the wax crayon and the egg dye this year. But a dozen eggs were enough for this crew. It sated their desire to color eggs and I don't have to worry about having too many boiled eggs hanging around in the refrigerator. The Girl will be eating hard boiled eggs for breakfast this week.
